    Question Forum Password Reset

    I've undoubtedly posted this in the wrong place, but as I didn't see any forums for discussion about the forum itself, this seemed like the best place to ask how one can go about resetting their forum password.

    Now, before I get bashed with clue-by-fours, let me say that I did indeed go "Settings/Edit Email & Password". The problem is that you need to know your current password in order to set a new password - and I don't know what my current password is!

    "Then how are you posting in the forum," one might ask. The answer is that back when I set up my account and logged in for the second time, I clicked that little button that basically was a "Remember Me" (a function of my browser, since IE says I'm a guest when I visit the site but chrome shows me as logged in).

    So, now I am trying to log into the site on my wife's laptop and cannot for the life of me remember what my password is and I can't seem to find a "I forgot my password" option here on the forum. I've experienced the 15 minute lockout several times since last night as I tried variations on what I thought I had used - but I have not yet successfully hit upon the right one yet. I looked through the FAQ and did a search of forum (lots of threads about phone passwords, but if there were any about the forum password they were buried too deeply in the search results for my patience).


    1. I apologize if this post is in the wrong place
    2. I apologize if the information I seek is in plain site and I just don't see it
    3. I thank anyone who can point me in the right direction for...
      1. ...posting threads of this nature in the future
      2. ...resolving my password issue

    Thank you for the reply short6in (and yours too, Mr.E!). I thought it might be as simple as that, and I did look for such a link, but I cannot find it. I'll see if I can attach a screenshot of what I'm seeing.

    This first one is the main screen. I can't find a "Forgot Password" link on the page, even if I use my browser's search function.

    This second one is what I see when I attempt to login. Again, I do not see a "Forgot Password" link. Am I just blind?

    Doh! Okay, NOW I see the "Forgot Password" link on the failed login attempt screen.

    Apparently, I am blind - I'm not sure how I missed that before. My apologies for wasting your time, but many thanks for the help.

    There are a few things I need to add to this theme.

    1. A way to access the forgot password form before logging in.
    2. Advanced search.
    3. Additional navigation for new options.
    Please check the forum and post there before PMing me. I have over 674 unread PMs due to the fact that they are issues which should have been addressed here.

    If you need to buy something from (Ebay), please use this LINK every time and support the forum!
